This is a magnificent villa in a superb location and helped make a family holiday very special indeed. The location is ideal to explore the local attractions with Massa Lubrensa a four minute drive away and the port a delightful 20 minute walk. With free parking and a regular bus service to Sorrento with its trains and ferries, Massa is a great location and nicely away from the frenetic hustle and bustle of Sorrento and the Amalfi coast. The villa has stunning views of Capri and the coast and we enjoyed the sun terraces very much indeed. Originally designed and built to a very high standard, the decor is 'of its time' particularly in the bathrooms and kitchen but no less pleasant for that. There is everything you will need and Michelina could not have been more responsive or helpful. Highly recommended
Our family stayed here in October, and we were thrilled with the villa. The view was amazing, the house very nicely located - pretty close to Sorrento and on the way to the Amalfi Coast. The inside of the villa was also wonderful - I don't think the photos do it justice.
We were two adults in their 70s, three adults in their 30-40s, and one infant who was not quite walking yet. The villa was so large and had so many different private spaces that everyone could have private space if they needed it. We cooked most nights since we had an infant with us, and found the kitchen well appointed with pots and pans. There's a nice market a short walk away, but up a steep hill.
We did not rent a car but did have a driver come take us somewhere most days. I would say that unless you're planning to only stay at the villa, I would recommend either renting a car or hiring a driver (like we did) - the hill to get up to the main road is very steep, and then the bus will still take you 20 mins to get into Sorrento.
Michelina was super responsive and helpful in setting things up. She helped us hire a chef for our first night there, which was a great idea since we were pretty tired from travel. She also set us up with a driver (we loved Mario!) to/from the airport and for a few day trips.
We experienced a few minor things like problems with hot water, but Michelina and Maria got everything sorted out for us quickly and I appreciated the quick response.
I would definitely recommend this villa if you're looking for a relaxing time in a convenient location and an amazing view.
The entire Amalfi coastal area is amazing to see. Thankfully to our villa contact, Michelina and the many recommendations of what to do; making of suggestions and arrangements were right on. We saw it all and totally enjoyed the area.
Michelina is simply awesome. She really made it a wonderful trip for all of us, especially with her right on suggestions and all that we saw and what we experienced was special. We will have fond and wonderful memories of the Villa, Massa Lubrense and Sorrento and of Michelina.
You must do the "Farm Tour", absolutely special and not to miss.....
We would love to visit and reserve the villa again along with Michelina's assistance.
It was a totally amazing trip.
Wonderful spacious villa with spectacular views! Plenty of room for seven and then some. Michelina goes out of her way to help plan a fantastic vacation; the communication could not have been better ... responds immediately. The walk down to the water is fine but back up is VERY difficult and the buses are so so. Recommend a car !
The villa and views are gorgeous. Kiley who checked us in was so helpful and answered all of our questions.
The 5 of us are in the 70 year old range and the hill to the bus is very difficult for some of the ladies. Personally I look at the hill as my "workout for the day".
